Paper Abstract

The knowledge of physiological loading is necessary for the analysis of different osteosynthetic devices. Surgical procedures also rely on the assumption of the real loading conditions of the human biomechanical system. The ultimate aim of the work is to describe the stress distribution in the leg-foot system by hologrammetric interferometry with the necessary contribution from other biomechanical methods, and to evaluate the mechanical role of the biomechanical elements of the locomotor system following previous work by several authors. The talus surface deformation is described by double-exposure hologrammetric interferometry and pertinent discussion of anatomical and clinical as surgical aspects is acomphished. The perspectives of the achieved results directing future objectives are presented in view of the ultimate aim of the research project.
